I have been asked by HQ to push the Race around the World event in the District. The money raised will go towards helping some of the Groups that are the struggling the most and hopefully avoid them closing.
The target is to raise over £300,000 for the 500+ Groups at risk of closing. Once you’re all signed up and raring to go, go, go, simply:
1. Travel a mile or more (you don’t have to physically complete your miles – have a look at other fun activities you could try)
2. Get sponsored
3. Log your miles (and help your team get all the way round the world!)
4. Tag us with #RaceRoundTheWorld on social media to show us how you’re doing (and help spread the word far and wide!)
Everyone can join in. Even if your Scout Group is not taking part, you can join in at home. Please note, you must be 13 or over to setup a fundraising page. If you’re younger, parents/carers will need to do this on your behalf.
Why not set up a team page and encourage the parents to join in ?
